Title: TTP Nov 19

I wondered whether it was a bad time to visit, because I hardly saw any birders there.

I did not find any owls, not surprising, I'm not that good at it to begin with.  I struggled to remember the name of the black backed gull, then laughed.

When I saw the red heads, I remembered the pic by Shortsighted, and I knew I could never take one as good as that

Didn't see them until they all took off, didn't find out who they were until I got home with field guide. So these are the legendary snow buntings

I also saw a Peregrine falcon chased a longtailed duck into the water with a huge bang. and a muskrat briefly surfaced. Didn't get shot. But so astonished to be there.

Nice assortment!


If you were there in the afternoon the birders probably went to Woodbine Park for the Black-throated Gray Warbler that was discovered there.
